A note to incoming students

Posted July 10, 2013, 12:07 ET Comments Off on A note to incoming students

A student has asked for my comments on the books that GMUSL recommends as summer reading. I can’t say I found the list very helpful, No doubt, one’s views on the subject are bound to be idiosyncratic, as I am sure mine are. But here they are: Philip Howard’s The Death of Common Sense is still a good read, as is Walter Olson’s The Rule of Lawyers; more recently, there’s Cass Sunstein’s Nudge and Bob Frank’s Darwinian Economics. You might also look at Harvey Silverglate’s Three Felonies a Day and Nick Taleb’s Antifragile (which should have been 2/3 shorter).

Or not.

Enjoy the rest of the summer!
